Watching IT guy on the show "How to get away with murder" explain how to hack:
"It's not that complicated, really. You just download that app from the deep web and worm your way into the phone company's main frame using basic java code. Anyone can learn how to do that."
Thats how you do it! Thank me later.8
Anyone reading these emails we are sending?
I work at a small place. A few users are using an application at our place that I develop and maintain. We all work remotely.
I announce by email to these few users a new version release of said application because of low level changes in the database, send the timeline for the upgrade, I include the new executable, with an easy illustrated 2 minutes *howto* to update painlessly.
Yet, past the date of the upgrade, 100% of the application users emailed me because they were not able to use the software anymore.
Or I have this issue where we identified a vulnerability in our systems - and I send out an email asking (as soon as possible) for which client version users are using to access the database, so that I patch everything swiftly right. Else everything may crash. Like a clean summary, 2 lines. Easy. A 30 second thing.
A week pass, no answer, I send again.
Then a second week pass, one user answers, saying:
> well I am busy, I will have time to check this out in February.
Then I am asking myself:
* Why sending email at all in the first place?
* Who wrote these 'best practices textbooks about warning users on schedule/expected downtime?'
*How about I just patch and release first and then expect the emails from the users *after* because 'something is broken', right? Whatever I do, they don't read it.
Oh and before anyone suggest that I should talk to my boss about this behavior from the users, my boss is included in the aforementioned 'users'.
Catch-22 much ? Haha thanks for reading
Any HTML / Frontend designers here who could share their opinion on the following:
A company project of mine is basically a document store with a (deep) folder hierarchy.
The deep folder hierarchy is not negotiable / changeable.
However my brain fries when I try to come up with a - mobile friendly / responsible - design.
There are ~ 10 - 15 root folders, having a maximum of 3 subfolders, so:
Folder 1 -> Documents
Folder 1 -> Subfolder of 1 -> Documents
Folder 2 -> Subfolder of 2 -> Documents
Any ideas on howto design something like that?
Was thinking about using a top navigation for the folders and then the rest of the screen for the document information...
But with 15 elements in top navigation it would be hard to navigate on mobile I think....
The naming and everything else ist managed by the customer.
When you are a junior dev and you ask howto do some shit to a senior dev. He answers vaguely and you have to keep asking during the wholr process instead of getting a full answer from the beginning5

I need to study.
I want to study.
But I can't.
I am 16 year old and I am in school. When I'm not studying for tests, I am programming something. I'm not finding time to do anything else. Just getting stressed.
Anyone in here started coding early too?
How do you separate time for school and for coding?8
1. Apply for a 3 month Java internship.
2. Prove your worth and skills during it not even liking Java.
3. Get invited to work full time after it without further internship in any technology you want.
4. Join the company when convenient year later as they really want you.
5. Be proud of how good you are that they still want you.
6. Get your own project in language and technology you prefer.
How do you guys deal with tiredness? I mean, holy shit, I feel so fucking tired all the time that it's starting to affect me at my work! Is it because I'm in school while I work? Is it because I don't get enough sleep? All I want is this FUCKING TIREDNESS TO GO THE FUCK AWAY, HOLY SHIT!14
I seem to be the person that tries to implement the default solution using the default HowTo - not going fucking anywhere because shit fucking breaks somewhere in the process.
Fuck people who advertise their software "as easy to install and to maintain" not maintaining their documentation.
Can I be a fucking user, oblivious of the world around me, just one fucking time?!
Also, coffee makes me fucking irritable atm.
(I probably should work in QA. Oh wait, I did something like that before.)3
The getting started of react native sucks big time.
If you don't want to display a completely centered text then go fuck yourself or what?
I mean there isn't even a howto on platform-independently not overlapping the fucking status bar. Everyone must've faced this problem when starting, but the only answer is an 8 times upvoted answer on SO telling me to add a hardcoded padding. What.
Where did this whole thing come to..🙁
Back in the days books about c didn't even start with more than 4 lines of code on the 70th page.
And when you google things about it it feels like you doing something totally wrong but its like the first thing a normal dude would do, what if i don't want shit centered bro i feel so useless and dumb i friggin hate that shit just fucking tell me what the fucking fuck to do!😫
It bugs me so hard cus i didn't even know a View is able to stick out on top of the app it doesn't make no sense to me the whole world is breaking apart12
Me and my friends were thinking about making a cryptocurreny for college project.
And we don't know where to start.
Could I get some help?7
Hi there, i'm new to AWS. i've running my python code in Lambda. Basically it's calling an http-request and processing the responding JSON to a CSV file. Now, what is the easiest way to transfer that CSV file to a 3rd party FTP Server?7
What is the best way to learn QA automation? Any ideas? If you have links to tutorial and also the download content for me to practice that would be great!!! Thanks2
Important merge request howto:
- Hey, I implemented very important server change and it doesn't break compatibility with current clients!
- Cool, but we don't need this compatibility code. We'll adopt our clients as soon as the merge request is accepted.
- Ok, I removed support of current clients.
- Cool, but it's too dangerous to adopt our clients rights now. We'll accept your merge request later. Some other day... somewhere... some other time...
This is a bit of a hard one, but...
Does anyone know how to make a markup language (with browser styling)?5
Hey, i am an idiot when it comes to web development and i wanted to kindly ask a question.
I am developing a blazor wasm webapp and i want to give the user some kind of onboarding process. the kind where some parts of the ui are highlighted with explanation on what which button does or area of ui is for.
how do you call something like that? I just need something to google for.
Thank you for your invaluable time and again sorry for my stupidy3
Fuck those weird encoding issues with Python! I've read the HowTo Unicode 10 or 20 times and I still got those 'ordinal not in range error'!!!2
This description, by Linus Torvalds, on how to revert a faulty merge reminded me why git is the wrong choice for many projects:
Back in 2014, I was developing a personal web page and I decided to add something called flip card on the page (it flips horizontally when hovered)
It worked but was not feeling very "natural". I mean the flip thing was not giving "that" feeling. So I ended up a fine summer evening tweaking shadow, speed, z-axis, etc. And then the next day I deleted the whole project because it was taking a lot of my time. Mood swings. Moved on to Machine Learning and never touched CSS stuff again. Was a lot of fun though.
For those who keep complaining about winblows and microshit, just know that windows is highly customizable (registry).
Look here for some tips: https://howtogeek.com/howto/37920/...
It's for win 7 but many should still work for win 104
Is there a big difference between being and Engineer 3 or an Engineer 2 or 1? At what point of time should you ask if you can be promoted to a higher Engineer level?16
